Windows 7: Windows 7 - Dual partitions during boot

Windows 7 - Dual partitions during boot

I'm sure this thread has been seen before so I'll cut to the chase: two entries during boot and I don't remember installing 7 twice, not even accidentally.

Is it alright if I delete the default boot?

I have neither the F3 or Seagate currently connected (as I thought the F3 may had something to do with it) but neither of them are actually pertinent to the issue as I don't use them as boot drives, just backup/additional storage.

Is there a similar problem to mine just underneath my own thread? I didn't even notice it until now.

If it is... *headdesk*

Set C as default without the 30 second timeout, reboot to confirm it's indeed the one you're booting into.

If so you're good to delete the other one.

Are there any other anomalies with the boot or performance at all - screen flashes, artifacts, etc? If so run a few Startup Repairs to test and sort it.

This can happen from repairs or from old boot code interfering.
